On 16 October 1996, Chicago Police Officer Jim Mullen was shot on duty while responding to a call of shots fired. The bullet struck Jim in the face, rendering him a ventilator dependent quadriplegic. Nearly 20 years later, Jim has been nothing short of an inspiration. He began his very own food company, Mullen Foods which makes Officer Mullen's Chicago's Finest Applesauce. With the sale of each jar of Officer Mullen's Applesauce, a portion is donated to the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation. Jim has overcome so much adversity, with such strength, courage and grace- and that's only part of the amazing man he is today.
Help us support the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation!
We are participating in the Run to Remember, which is a 5k Run/Walk held in memory of the more than 570 Chicago police officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
Why should you support the CPMF? The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to honoring the lives of our fallen heroes by providing support and financial assistance to the families of Chicago Police Officers who were killed or catastrophically injured in the line of duty. Through your generous support, they serve the families of those who have served and protected Chicago’s citizens. The Foundation provides $60,000 to the family at the time of an officer’s death and continues to support the family by providing educational and tuition assistance for the officer’s children.
Many injured\disabled officers have reached out to me over the last eight months. They are in desperate need of financial assistance, since waiting so long for their final duty disability status hearings. Many officers have been at no pay status, anywhere from six months, up to two years. . I've said this once before, and will say it again, "SINCE 2012, THE PENSION BOARD HAS GONE BACK TWENTY YEARS IN THE WAY THEY ARE TREATING OUR INJURED OFFICERS. Don't ever think injured in the line of duty cannot happen to you! It's time to make the Pension Board accountable for their actions. Over ten thousand ballots were sent out for the Trustee election, and very few ballots were returned to make these crucial changes. Now, our injured officers are going to suffer even more while in pain, lost wages, lost homes, lost cars, divorces and bankrupties! The children also suffer!!!
LOOK AT AL'S FACE!!
THE NEXT GO FUND ME PAGE COULD BE YOU!
PLEASE HELP HIM OUT AND MAKE THE PENSION BOARD ACCOUNTABLE!
